During almost 30 years of service in various positions within Volkswagen, Frank Witter has driven the Group forward and contributed greatly to its robust position that has been confirmed once again by the latest figures. I would expressly like to thank him for his achievements and wish him all the best for the future. Arno Antlitz is an excellent successor, distinguished not only by his strategic and analytical vision, but also by his financial expertise.
